RAD – Rotherham African Drums
We take the classic world instrument, the djembe, and makes it accessible for everyone. The simplicity of this lovely, portable instrument and the satisfaction of the sounds you can make with it means that anyone can enjoy playing!
As a result we have a huge range of people involved with RAD. We have a group for adults with learning and other disabilities, we run two community groups for all ages and abilities and we also have an advanced group who are developing practice to a higher level.
